Free MLK Day Promotional Items

Martin Luther King Jr. Day is observed on the third Monday of January each year. It's not a holiday that traditionally is associated with freebies. However, to spread the word, the government is giving away free MLK Day promotional items every year. I still have my door hangers from 2011!

  • MLK Day Posters
  • MLK Day Fact Sheet
  • bookmarks
  • stickers
  • door hangers

While at the beach last summer, I could have their free MLK bookmark. After finishing a chapter, I wanted to go take a dip in the ocean but didn't have a bookmark. I started to dog ear the page, but then came up the ingenious plan to make a bookmark! I grabbed a handful of sand, mashed it together tightly, and stuck it in the book.

Yeah, that didn't work.


Mother’s Day Freebies

Unless otherwise noted, all of the freebies below are available on Sunday, May 10 (Mother's Day!). As always, be sure to call ahead to your local store to make sure they're participating in the freebies.

And of course, if you know of any that I missed, please leave a comment!

Bob Evans – Print out this coupon and get a free slice of pie after 4pm.

Champps – Moms get a free entree with the purchase of an equally valued entree.

El Pollo Loco – In a fabulous PR move, they are offering to honor the KFC coupon that many of us printed but were unable to use thanks to KFC not being prepared to meet the demand. Here's to El Pollo Loco stepping in to fill the free chicken void in our lives.

Ikea – Moms can get a free small breakfast and coffee. No word on whether or not you can eat it while lounging on some of the furniture.

Kodak – First off, shipping is not included in this offer, but if you use the code FREECARD, you can get a free custom photo card worth up to $2.49.

Michael's Kids' Workshop On Saturday, there's a Make it for Mom Bead Event (pretty self-explanatory) while on Sunday, they have a Decorate a Cookie with Mom event. Both are from 1-4pm. (thanks Scoring Deals!)

Outback Steakhouse – Bring “mum” in and she can get a free $10 gift certificate good for her next visit.

Smokey Bones – Moms get a free meal (up to $20) with the purchase of an equally valued meal.

TCBY – They're offering a free cup or cone of yogurt to all moms!

T.G.I. Friday's – With the purchase of an entree, mom's get a free mom-sized (what the heck is that?) Brownie Obsession or Spiced Up Cupcake.

Texas de Brazil (warning: their website auto-plays some amazing eurodance techno music. Do not go there if you are prone to outbursts of dancing and/or raving) – Here's a coupon good for up to two free entrees with the purchase of two regular sized dinners.

Texas Land & Cattle – Mom's can get a coupon good for one free entree (up to $15), which can be redeemed during their next visit.


Inauguration Day Freebies

Following up on their successful Election Day giveaway, you can get one free Krispy Kreme donut just by stopping in at your local store tomorrow (Tuesday, January 20, 2009). I say they keep up with the pace they've now set and give away free donuts once every two months. I'm pretty sure that was one of Obama's campaign promises or something.


Free Letters From Santa

Even while he's busy making enough toys to give away this year, Santa somehow finds time in his day to write individual letters to every little girl and boy who write him. As a kid, I never knew what his address was, but now that I've come across it, I thought I'd share it with all you kiddos out there! So be sure and write Santa early this year so that he can write you back before Christmas!
